2012 Resolutions

Here are my 2012 resolutions

Wait. That won’t work.

I’m not big on resolutions. I’m not sure if it’s laziness, a need to buck against tradition, or an instinct that knows the minute I set one, I’ll do my best to break it. But I never come through with my New Year’s resolutions.

If I’ve learned anything over the past year it’s that I’ve got a lot of growing to do still. A lot of things to figure out. I will be turning 29 in the next month, and a part of me still feels like I’m fumbling through my teenage years. And while I’ve accomplished a lot in life, there’s still more work to be done.

But I can’t plan everything. I can’t control others…or even sometimes my own actions. And so instead of resolutions, I will post my hopes for 2012.

*I hope to not have to hide in shame when my debut novel comes out in April. I hope I don’t shy away from what I’ve worked so hard to complete.

*I hope to meet all my deadlines.

*I hope to return the social media love that has been given to me.

*I hope to embrace life and all its current craziness….great material for books, right?

*I hope to control what I can control, and let be what I can’t.
